Fred W. Beinke, Jr. July 5, 1932 - May 26, 2024

Fred W. Beinke, Jr. died at home on Sunday, May 26. He was born on July 5, 1932, in Cincinnati, Ohio to Fred (Fritz) Beinke, Sr. and Maria (Daus) Beinke. He graduated from Batavia High School and served in the U.S. Navy on board ship where he had the opportunity to travel to see many parts of the world. On July 5, 1958, he married the love of his life, June (Meyer) Beinke at the Cathedral Basilica Saint Peter in Chains in downtown Cincinnati. He worked as a baker at Frisch’s and Birk’s Bakeshop in Mt. Lookout, and later as a long-haul driver for McLean Trucking and for Keebler, where he was able to travel and take in the beauty of the country. After retirement, he worked at St. Rose Church, planting and maintaining the beautiful gardens and grounds.

 

Fred is survived by his children, their spouses, grandchildren and great grandchildren, Julie Koch-Beinke and husband Mark Koch; Fritz (Fred) Beinke, wife Theresa (Brooks) Beinke, their children David and Barb (O’Hara) Beinke, Tess (Beinke) and Seth Kitchener, grandchildren Keith and Reese, Nick and Gabrielle (Ferrerra) Beinke, grandchildren Cole and Owen, Bill and Jillian (Pamlanye) Beinke, grandchildren Bo, Jack and Fred; Tom and Julie (Holtzleiter) Beinke, their children Samantha and Garrett; Rob and Nicole (Harvey) Beinke, their children Jacob, Alana and Rae Ann; his older brother Carl Beinke and his children, nieces and nephews Marty, Patty, Joe John and Betsy and their families; sister in-laws Lois (Meyer) Greene and husband Mike, Alice (Meyer) Albers, and Karen Meyer and partner Bruce; and cousins Margrit Labrenz Pröhl, Ilse Auffarth, and many other loving relatives in Germany. He was preceded in death by his parents, first son William, and wife June.

 

Fred’s extended family consisted of a wide array of beloved animals over his lifetime – our basset hound, Mr. B, two parakeets, Pete and Mike, two ponies, Scat and Moe, a turtle, goldfish, some ducklings and chicks, a rabbit named Hector, and a few other rabbit friends, a young turkey, some geese, a rescued orphan baby raccoon, Bandit, Great Danes Ben and Zonk, Dixie the bloodhound, Sassy the Guinea Pig, two young heifers, a beautiful Thoroughbred horse, Shane, lots of goats, a couple of miniature donkeys, Pedro and Cisco, a mammoth donkey, Eeyore, his fetching partners, German Shepards, Kane and Zeke, and his best friend, Grand Pyrenees pup, Cotton. This may sound like a small family farm, but all were just considered members of the extended family and were for no purpose other than providing friendship and a lot of fun.

 

 

Later in life, wild animals, deer, birds, groundhogs, squirrels, chipmunks, raccoons and all the local inhabitants joined Fred for daily feasts in the backyard and nearby woods. We will all miss his generosity, care and love.
